In non-Thing news, I replaced a zipper in Martina’s spring jacket today. I’ve been putting it off — who likes replacing zippers? — but it wasn’t so bad. I used a shortcut that Jessica at Gracious Threads wrote about. This quick method may not please the purist, but it pleased me and worked like a charm. Thanks, Jess!
Today’s Things were the result of yesterday’s productive beading evening. I made two bracelets, using 4mm Swarovski pearls (Mystic Black) and some silver-coloured seed beads.
The clasps are sterling silver, as are the little bits of chain, which I finished off with another pearl.
I love Swarovski pearls. They have a deep lustre and the coating is much stronger than most pearl beads. They stay beautiful for years.
The jewelry pile is growing. One more beading night before our sale!
